Health Care Professionals
HealthyWomen helps health care professionals educate their female patients about a wide array of women's health concerns. We regularly produce free for consumers our Women’s Health Updates and Fast Facts for Your Health on topics ranging from Alzheimer’s to flu to uterine fibroids. We also produce a variety of specialty publications. By making these publications available to patients and referring them to our Web site and toll-free hotline, health care professionals can effectively supplement the education and support services they provide to their patients.

Examples of some of our recent public education programs include:
Flu Free and a Mom-to-Be
Women who are pregnant during influenza season are at an increased risk of serious complications from the flu. HealthyWomen and the Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) have launched the "Flu-Free and a Mom-to-Be” campaign to educate pregnant women about the benefits to both themselves and their unborn child by having the flu shot while pregnant. As part of the campaign, an informational tip card and poster have been developed for display in medical offices and clinics. This program is supported by CSL Biotherapies.
Heart disease remains the leading cause of death for women of all ages and kills 367,000 every year. HealthyWomen, in conjunction with WomenHeart, the National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease, developed a specialty brochure, consumer tip card and online educational materials to help women better understand key risks to heart health. The printed materials were distributed nationwide to more than 100,000 women at risk for or living with heart disease via WomenHeart’s “Red Bag of Courage” program. In addition to the brochure and tip card, each bag was filled with additional information, coupons and products that help women take charge of their heart health and handle the disease with both courage and confidence. This program was supported by Novartis.
Sex and a Healthier You
To help women learn more about healthy female sexuality, HealthyWomen and the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals joined forces to develop an educational campaign titled, “Sex and a Healthier You.” The campaign seeks to provide accurate information and advance positive sexual health messages by raising awareness about sexual function as a natural and valued aspect of women’s lives. Additionally, the program aims to increase the level of meaningful and effective communication between women and their health care providers and women and their partners. This program is supported by Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Cervical Health and HPV
HealthyWomen developed print and online materials as well as a targeted print public service announcement to educate women ages 30 and older about the importance of asking for an HPV test during their regular health exam. The campaign seeks to help women learn the facts about cervical health and the HPV test, raise awareness of the test and provide women with tools to help them talk to their health care providers about the test and its results. This campaign is supported by Qiagen.
